  26. what does spindle shape look like?
    wide in center and thinner as they go to ends
  27. in a smooth muscle the nucleus is located?
    centrally and is oval shape bc is mirrors the cell shape by being elongated
  28. in a smooth muscle you need?

  33. with sheets, there are always atleast ___ that are separated by a thin layer of ___ ___
    • 2
    • connective tissue
  34. by combo of contractions in both sheets, what happens?
    a force can be generated in either direction
  35. ex of sheet arrangement in smooth muscle?
    gut tube
  36. outside layer that is a layer of covering and lining epithelium
  37. come from subconscious regions of brain
  38. autonomic nervous system controls ?
  39. smooth muscle is aka
    involuntary muscle
  40. what happens if we initiate contraction in one fiber?
    all will begin to contract
  41. contraction spreads from?
    cell to cell to cell
  42. initiate contraction by ?
    stretching cell out, which is a response to mechanical force
  43. ex of contraction?
    in gut tube a bolus of food pushes out on wall and responsed by squeezing in
  44. which type of muscle contracts slowest?
    smooth muscle
  45. since smooth muscle contracts slowest, is means it has a ?
    slower response
  46. slower response?
    contraction can be sustained for a long period of time
  47. a slower response also means/
    resistance to fatigue, so it takes longer to depleat energy sources
  48. smooth muscle fibers are
    resistant to fatigue
  49. striated muscle fibers shape?
    very long
  50. typical length of striated muscles?
    1 - 40mm
  51. striated muscle fibers will?
    run the entire length of muscle
  52. striated muscle fibers diameter?
    are 1 - 40 um in diameter
  53. in a cross section, striated muscles are
    very very narrow long threadlike cells
  54. where is nucleus located in striated muscle?
    • peripherally located
    • nuclei are right underneath cell membrane
  55. striated muscle fibers are?
    have more than 1 nucleus (multinucleated)
  56. how do striated muscle fibers become elongated?
    they fused with other cells, which is why they have more than 1 nuclei
  57. the number of nuclei is tied to the ?
    length of muscle fiber
  58. how many nuclei are there per mm of length?
  59. 1 mm = how many nuclei? 2 mm = ?
    • 35 nuclei
    • 70 nuclei
  60. shape of striated muscle fiber?
  61. striated muscle have what type of pattern?
  62. banding pattern in striated muscle?
    made of dark and light bands
  63. packs interior of cells and has banding pattern (inside striated muscle fiber)
  64. creates repeating subunits that go from z-line to z-line and has dark and light bands
  65. repeating unit from z-line to z-line
  66. sarcomere is what gives
  67. made of thin and thick filaments
  68. thick filaments of striated muscle fiber ?
    • aka myosin
    • center, dark bands
  69. thick filaments of striated muscle fibers?
    extrend from z line to z line to center of sarcomere
  70. banding pattern is created due to ?
    difference in thickness of filaments
  71. dark bands?
    A bands that make location of myosin
  72. light bands?
    I bands that are caused by lack of myosin
  73. thin filaments overlap with?
